WS Pioneer600 Raspberry Pi Expansion Board (WS Pioneer 600 board)
Note : the Pi, cables and sensors are NOT included.

Description:

The Pioneer600 is a blue expansion board that clicks onto the GPIO pins of Raspberry Pi and adds a range of additional features.

First of these features we noticed was a five-way joystick and 0.96-inch OLED display. This is backed up by a dual-LED and buzzer. On closer inspection, we discovered the on-board LFN0038K to enable remote control. A DS3231 real-time clock is also included (you’ll need to supply your own battery).

There is a built-in BMP280 for measuring air pressure and temperature, but it’s the available ports for external sensors that are the key attraction: a PCF8591, 8-bit resolution, screw terminal interface, a 1-Wire device (a DS18B20 thermometer is included), a 4×4 pin sensor interface, and GPIO expansion.

There is also a micro USB to UART connection and cable supplied. UART is normally used to debug Raspberry Pi, but with debugging mode disabled, you can send data to and from Raspberry Pi and a connected PC. 


Pioneer600 Features
  • Supports Raspberry Pi A /B /2B/3B/3B
  • <Standard I/O> dual LED, joystick, buzzer, the basic components
  • <USB TO UART> CP2102, control the Pi through serial terminal
  • <Display> 0.96inch OLED, big world in the little screen
  • <RTC> DS3231, high precision, backup battery holder is also available
  • <AD/DA> PCF8591, 8-bit resolution, screw terminal IO interface
  • <GPIO Expansion> PCF8574, more GPIO, more possibility
  • <IR Control> LFN0038K, Raspberry Pi remote control comes true
  • <Pressure Sensor> BMP280, measuring air pressure and temperature
  • <1-WIRE> for connecting 1-WIRE devices, DS18B20 is included
  • <Sensor Interface> for connecting various sensors

FAQ
Why the LCD doesn't work with my Raspbian?
To use the LCD with the Raspberry Pi official image, driver should be installed first. Please refer to the user manual.
However, for the first testing, you may want to use our provided image directly.
Why the LCD still doesn't work with the Waveshare provided image?
Make sure the hardware connection is correct and connects fine.
Make sure the image in TF card is burnt correctly.
The PWR will keep on and the ACT will keep blinking when the Raspberry Pi starts up successfully, in case both of the two LEDs keep on, it is possible that the image was burnt incorrectly OR the TF card was in bad contact.
Which power supply should I use?
It is recommended to use a 5V/3A power adapter for the Raspberry Pi other than USB connection, otherwise the Pi may failed to start up because the PC's USB port might have not enough power.
For large size LCDs, say, 10inch diagonal or more, another stand-alone power adapter is also required to provide power to the LCD.
